Love Food Hate Waste

New Zealanders throw away 157,389 tonnes of food a year. That is equivalent to 271 jumbo jets of food that has to go somewhere to rot, instead of being eaten. All of this food is worth about $1.17 billion each year.

That amount of food could feed the population of Dunedin for nearly three years!


Rescued from the rubbish – the average New Zealand house throws out double this amount every year.
